Ruger Charger!

edited March 11 in General Firearms #1
Sako and I went on a gun store crawl this afternoon. We had a great time saw some cool stuff and noticed brass, primers and bullets seem to be coming  back slowly. The second to last stop we found something that Sako is going back for a second look tomorrow. I’ll let him fill you all in later. Me I found my treasure at Scheels of all places…for $245!! I found a Ruger Charger, the original ones with the laminate wood stock. It looks to be unfired and in perfect shape. Man this is cool! Now I’m on the hunt for optics. 
Turns out it’s a first year production gun! 
Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    So here’s the deal Hoover.  And so Sako knows what I told you via text message.  I’m inviting myself to come along for one of these GS crawls and you guys need to give me a 5 minute head start before you walk in 🤬. 

    Call it FNG courtesy. Otherwise I’ll just run you over….
    You’ve been warned.

    That's what I paid for mine about 15 years ago! Back when eggs were a dollar.

    Won't help, Andy has radar for those deals. You should have seen him standing guard over the case while we tried to get someones attention to get it out of the case. Pretty sure he even growled at some guy that got to close :D

    Yes, yes I did! I though about it really hard, I was not going to let that get away!  I’ve had guys swoop in before and “take” gun deals when I stepped away to get help. Wasn’t happening with this one!

    Yep, they were pretty reasonable when they were new. Now find one of the original wood stocked versions!

    Sweet!  I have the same one and really like it. I did the trigger upgrade and it’s worth it. Love my Charger. My boy took his first quail with it (legal in TX).

    The wood stocks, non AR grip versions aren’t that common….

    It wasn’t wood. Don’t remember the grip.

    The first few years were a laminate stock  and solid frame. The latest production guns are take downs and a combo of wood stock and synthetics with AR style grips.

    Yeah pretty much. Search out the deals, sometimes they find you!

    Do NOT tell Andy you're looking for something unless you're serious about it... because when he finds it you will most likely become serious. The number of guns I have because of him equals how many times we've hung out.
